Bridal Inspiration {Parties}

Now that I have THE DRESS, I can focus on  the dresses (among other things) that I will hopefully wear to parties here and there. I love the idea of the bride wearing a chic white dress to all the engagements she attends. Here are some inspiring dresses…

Lanvin Alice + Olivia Etoile Isabel Marant Milly Narciso Rodriguez Richard Nicoll Shirt Sandro Halston Heritage Versace Jason Wu Antonio Berardi Valentino 

This one is the ultimate…

New Week, New Year

After all of the celebrations, it is finally time to come back to work. I’m sorry it’s been so long since I last posted. With the engagement and the holidays, it’s been crazy! I can’t believe I am going to start planning a wedding now. I’ll try not to gush over it too much. But…I can’t promise anything.

The Proposal


We’re engaged! I am still in shock, completely. My sweet (fiancé – gahhh!) Robert asked me to get hitched on Friday night. I was totally surprised. My mom was in on it and lured me out to the Fayetteville square on the guise of taking family photos. He was completely caught off guard when the square was full of people, horse-draw carriages and even camels. We started walking around and he told me I was the love of his life – to which I said “you’re the love of my life too babe!” I did not get it until he dropped to one knee. I couldn’t believe it and collapsed onto him, hugging him. We are out-of-this world excited. His family honored me with his Great-Grandmother’s ring. Many more details to come!
